Garlic & tahini free hummus

This recipe is keeping it super simple. If you can’t have garlic or tahini there IS a way [not shop bought sadly!] that you can still have hummus.

I’m allergic to garlic and sesame seeds have recently started to affect me allergy-wise. I used to make a non garlic hummus with tahini but now I’ve kept it even more simple and it’s a lot less rich and gentle on my stomach! If you can tolerate tahini but not garlic, just add 1 tbsp tahini to the recipe too!


1 can chickpeas (drained)

1 tbsp olive oil

Juice from 1 lemon

1/2 tsp salt (or more to taste)


It’s so simple you can just add the ingredients all to a blender, mix and it’s ready in 2 minutes

It’s not very rich but is creamy and has a subtle lemony tang to it! 🍋

I love to eat this with crudités and gluten free pitta bread and garnish with coriander and pine nuts too

PS: If you have IBS or are following a low FODMAP diet I recommend not eating the whole of this in one serving and chickpeas aren’t low FODMAP - I split this into 4 portions to eat for different snacks so I’m not over doing it
